3 min readOct 14, 2022

Welcome to the 48th installment of the Realm Devlog!

We’ve been busy building out some amazing features and collaborations that will soon be seeing the light of day, as well as some core functionality such as in-game stores that we’ll be diving into here.

As usual, you can catch the weekly AMA here

We also concluded our first week of Don’t Fall — The winners this week will all receive an equal prize! We will also be resetting the leaderboard each week so that everyone has a fresh go at leading the pack.

Congratulations to our Winners!

Lets get stuck in:

In-Game Stores

After completing work on the in-app payments on Apple Pay and Google Pay, it was now time to allow people to spend these in-game credits on actual items! This is no small feat, requiring in-game marketplaces, secure systems for spending in-game credits, and then redeeming these items into a users account.

The development team have done an amazing job here to close the loop of Fiat purchases and buying in-game items!

As the launch of HOVR gets ever closer, the team are preparing to unleash this awesome Realm Originals project into the world! The HOVR project has largely been in stealth mode until now, and behind the scenes we’ve been working on making it the slickest experiences to date in the Realm universe.

Alongside this we’ve been developing the brand and assets to do the project justice, and we’re showing you a sneak peak of a microsite that’s currently in development! We expect this to launch within the next couple of weeks with the whitelist open for all at that stage.
